In the summer we successfully delivered the new ASD Tug 2913 named Osprey to Saqr Port - part of Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) Ports.

The tug has joined the RAK Ports tug fleet and operates in the new deep-water bulk terminal currently nearing completion at the port.

In addition to her 80-tonnes of bollard pull capacity, the 29-metre ASD Tug 2913 also features high freeboard and a raised quarterdeck for safe operations in rough seas.

The customer lauded the yard for flexible and professional approach and congratulated the Albwardy Damen team for building Osprey on high quality and her delivery on time.

Building the tug locally was a major deciding factor for RAK ports. It has many advantages with regards to delivery procedures, official formalities with authorities and supervision. Also Albwardy Damen together with Damen Services will be a one stop shop for any modifications, services, and dry dockings in the future.
